Mané on his father: “I was 7 yrs old. My brother came over and said, ‘Our father is dead’. He had a stomach ache… there was no hospital, he was taken to a healer in another village and he died there. This is one of the many reasons I decided to finance a hospital in my village.”
Mane who joined Liverpool in 2016 has so far won the Champions League, Premier League, Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup during his time on Merseyside.
